Best Lawyers® Names Two Ahlers & Cooney Attorneys as Des Moines Lawyers of the Year in Employment Law and Environmental Law

Des Moines, Iowa (October 10, 2011) Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named two Ahlers & Cooney attorneys as 2012 Best Lawyers in Des Moines for their respected areas of practice:
·        Elizabeth Gregg Kennedy – Best Lawyers’ 2012 Des Moines Employment Law - Management Lawyer of the Year
·        Jane B. McAllister – Best Lawyers’ 2012 Des Moines Environmental Law Lawyer of the Year
After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating “Lawyers of the Year” in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the “Lawyer of the Year.”

Best Lawyers compiles its lists of outstanding attorneys by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. The current, 18th edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2012) is based on more than 3.9 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

The lawyers being honored as “Lawyers of the Year” have received particularly high ratings in our surveys by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, says, “We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one’s peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Elizabeth Gregg Kennedy and Jane McAllister on being selected as two of ‘Des Moines Best Lawyers of the Year’ for 2012.”
